Pets in Paris: Everything you need to know
Paris isn't all about love and romance. Although there's certainly no shortage of romantic places to stay, this city is perhaps best shared with a faithful furry friend. Fancy a nice meal while you're out with your pooch? No problem. Restaurants not only allow you to take your dog inside, some will even let them sit at the table. For a quintessentially French dining experience for both you and your dog, try out La Fontaine de Mars.
In theory, food shops don't allow pets inside, but this rule seems to be widely disregarded – a dog sitting happily in the shopping trolley isn't an uncommon sight. You can take pets on public transport too, making it easier to travel around Paris without leaving your animal at home. On the metro, trams and buses your pet must be transported inside either a carrier or a tote bag. This rule applies to all animals from small hamsters and ferrets right up to cats and dogs. If your pet is too large for you to carry around (don't even think about putting your labrador into an Ikea carrier, it won't end well), you're best off finding other ways to get around Paris. The RER trains have slightly different rules and allow large dogs, providing they are leashed and wearing a muzzle. This is because these trains are generally larger, with more space inside to accommodate bigger pets. However, you will need to buy a ticket for any pet that isn't being carried - at child rate, thankfully.
